When I first entered college, I was not very well prepared. The challenges I ran into might have overwhelmed me if my transition coach hadn't been there to help. She assisted me though my experience, helping me to get my priorities straight, as well as remind me that I might not always do perfect and that it's OK. The support group helped me simply by reminding me that I'm not an alien, and that there are others with similar problems.
